WASHINGTON, Jan 22 (Reuters) – The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives will deliver an impeachment charge against former President Donald Trump to the Senate on Monday, rejecting Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s request for a delay. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, who displaced McConnell as the chamber’s leader after Democrats won two Georgia runoff elections this month, announced the move on the Senate floor but did not say when Trump’s second impeachment tri...

Southern Californians eagerly await — or dread — Joe Biden’s inauguration

Four years ago this week, Rick Reiss, while visiting his wife’s family in the Philippines, got up at 3 a.m. to watch President Donald Trump’s inauguration. On Wednesday, Jan. 20, Reiss will be home in Temecula. But instead of watching President-elect Joe Biden’s swearing-in, Reiss might grab his “Don’t Tread on Me” flag and join fellow conservatives at an outdoor rally. “With what’s happening now, obviously I’m not happy about how things turned out,” he said. “I’m not in a depression though … I’...

Trump allies were behind rally that ignited Capitol riot, records show

WASHINGTON — Members of President Donald Trump’s failed presidential campaign played key roles in orchestrating the Washington rally that spawned a deadly assault on the U.S. Capitol, according to an Associated Press review of records, undercutting claims the event was the brainchild of the president’s grassroots supporters. A pro-Trump nonprofit group called Women for America First hosted the “Save America Rally” on Jan. 6 at the Ellipse, an oval-shaped, federally owned patch of land near the W...

Don’t hate the political players, hate the political game

Many Americans are very upset that President-elect Joe Biden will replace President Donald Trump. For most of them, it’s not that they will miss Trump’s unconventional and often unacceptable behavior. Instead, it’s that they fear that the size and scope of government will grow so fast that it will permanently change the country they love. And this fear has intensified with the defeat of two Republican senators in the Georgia runoffs, resulting in Democrats regaining control of the Senate. At the...

Expecting trouble, Washington locks down ahead of inauguration

WASHINGTON — All through downtown Washington, the primary sound for several blocks was the beeping of forklifts unloading more fencing. There were no cars or scooters and seemingly no tourists Wednesday, just the occasional jogger and multiple construction crews at work. The U.S. Capitol that proved such a soft target last week was visible only through lines of tall, black fence. Two blocks from the White House, a group of uniformed National Guard troops emerged from a tour bus and headed into a...

LA council members call for probe into city employee involvement in Capitol riot

Los Angeles City Council members called for an investigation into whether city employees were involved in the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. that began as a protest of the results of the presidential election and morphed into an insurrection. Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez introduced a motion Wednesday that would direct all city departments — including from the police, fire and personnel departments —  to conduct this probe. She said that “city employees, especially sworn ...

South Bay Rep. Ted Lieu tapped as manager in drive to impeach Trump for second time

Rep. Ted Lieu, an outspoken South Bay critic of President Donald Trump, is among Democrats leading the second impeachment effort against President Donald Trump. The effort, which began in the House of Representatives Wednesday morning, launched hours of debate, with each party’s representatives alternating with impassioned arguments for and against.

President Trump on verge of second impeachment after Capitol siege

By LISA MASCARO, MARY CLARE JALONICK and JONATHAN LEMIRE | Associated Press WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is on the verge of being impeached for a second time in a fast-moving House vote, just a week after he encouraged loyalists to “fight like hell” against election results and then a mob of supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol. “We are debating this historic measure at a crime scene,” said Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass. Security was exceptionally tight Wednesday, shocking images of National G...

Experts fear violent demonstrations could continue after Biden’s inauguration

This week, the FBI confirmed what experts who study violent extremism and domestic terrorism have said they feared since rioters breached the U.S. Capitol — continued violence before and after President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration. With a week to go before Biden takes his oath of office, the FBI is warning of plans for armed protests at all 50 state capitals and in Washington, D.C., in the days leading up to the Jan. 20 inauguration. An internal FBI bulletin warned that nationwide protests ma...

Metal detectors installed outside the House floor

By Jake Tapper and Daniella Diaz | CNN Members of Congress and staffers will have to walk through metal detectors in order to get onto the floor of the US House of Representatives, a senior Democratic aide told CNN Tuesday. The development comes after multiple House Democrats told CNN they are worried about some of their Republican colleagues and that there have been multiple conversations about the need for every member of Congress and their guests to start going through metal detectors.

LAPD wants to know if its officers attended Trump rally or Capitol Building riot

The Los Angeles Police Department is working with the FBI to identify any of its officers who attended President Donald Trump’s rally or the attack on the Capitol Building that followed last week in the wake of reports of law enforcement and military members in the crowd. Chief Michel Moore, in a Police Commission meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 12, said he spoke with LAPD’s command staff members and “instructed them that if we learned of anyone that has traveled to D.C. for the president’s remarks or ...

As dust settles on chaos in D.C., accounting begins in Southern California

Even as the House of Representatives laid the groundwork Monday for a second impeachment of President Donald Trump, one of his supporters, Jessica Martinez, took heavy political fire 3,000 miles away in her role as a member the Whittier City Council. Martinez was in Washington D.C. last week when Trump supporters broke into the U.S. Capitol in the hope of upending the recent presidential election. Now, many in the city of 86,000 want her to step down from the council. She’s hardly alone. From lo...

Republicans can no longer ignore the reality of Donald Trump

SACRAMENTO >> After watching Wednesday’s otherworldly events — a violent seize of the United States Capitol by pro-Trump mobs who were incited by the president — I was left thinking of a quotation from “1984” and “Animal Farm” author George Orwell: “To see what is in front of one’s nose needs a constant struggle.” That should be the enduring slogan of the Trump era. We’ve all seen what Donald Trump was about long before he entered politics — and yet large swaths of the Republican Party and publi...

Key senate Democrat says he’ll block $2,000 stimulus checks

By Susan Heavey | Reuters WASHINGTON – Democratic U.S. Senator Joe Manchin on Friday said he opposed the payment of bigger direct checks to help Americans cope with the COVID-19 pandemic, throwing cold water on possible further stimulus payments as the Democrats regain control of the Senate and the White House. Manchin, a moderate Democrat from West Virginia, a conservative stronghold, told the Washington Post in an interview that he would “absolutely not” support a new round of payments, despit...

Why Kamala Harris will still be a key player in the Senate

Kamala Harris may be departing the Capitol for the White House but the incoming vice president will still be a key voice on the Hill. With this week’s special election in Georgia appearing to send two more Democrats to the Senate, the powerful governing body is set to be evenly divided, 50-50, between Republicans and Democrats. As vice president, California native Harris could cast the deciding vote on everything from President Joe Biden’s Cabinet nominees to federal judges. “She’ll probably spe...

The madness of Trumpism on full display

The whole world was watching, and on Wednesday we didn’t look so good. Rabid, armed supporters of outgoing President Donald Trump invading the Capitol was one thing to behold. It was even worse that not long before, the president had directly addressed the mob and fanned the flames that led the gathering of MAGA fans to storm the Capitol, which was criminally easy to do, with security unaccountably light. That president then watched on television from the Oval Office as the horde descended on th...

Watch live: Senate debates Electoral College vote

Click here if you’re having trouble viewing this video on a mobile device. Republicans from the House and Senate have objected to the counting of Arizona’s electoral vote, forcing votes in both chambers on Joe Biden’s victory in the state. The objection was made by Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar and was signed by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. Both are Republicans. The two chambers now have two hours to debate the challenge.

Republicans shouldn’t sacrifice their principles for political theatrics

There is no constitutional or logical reason for Congress to do anything but certify the Electoral College votes on Wednesday. We will soon learn which members of Congress are there to faithfully defend the Constitution and represent the best interests of their constituents, and which are not. The Twelfth Amendment to the Constitution is clear about the role of Congress in handling Electoral College votes sent by the states. “The president of the Senate shall, in the presence of the Senate and H...

Reflecting back on our dystopian year

As we head into a new year, we would like to cast off the old one by recounting some of its most significant stories. Despite 2020’s awfulness, it was certainly historically unforgettable from start to finish. The sad plight of the koalas. The New Year started with Australian bushfires that consumed 45 million acres and obliterated the habitat for koalas. The fires left a horrific trail of wreckage on human beings and every manner of wildlife, but the sad plight of the inexpressibly cute koala s...

The fate of California hangs on Georgia

So why should Californians care about a runoff election for two U.S. Senate seats in Georgia occurring Jan. 5? The answer is simple. The outcome of that election will have major implications for national politics and that includes profound impacts on California. Unlike Las Vegas, what happens in Georgia will not stay in Georgia. It is rare that two Senate seats are up for grabs in a single state simultaneously. And because the outcome will determine control of the U.S. Senate, it has focused the...

The California Legislature should just scrap Assembly Bill 5

Nearly a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, unemployment remains stubbornly high. California’s unemployment rate is at 9.3 percent, compared to 6.7 percent nationally. California voters helped by passing Proposition 22 in November, which exempts app-based rideshare and delivery companies like Uber, Lyft, and DoorDash from California’s Assembly Bill 5“gig work” law. This comes months after the state legislature passed an “oops” bill to exempt thousands of other workers that AB5 accidentally threw o...

Democrats might want to pump the brakes on progressive shift

The Republican Party’s election night gains in the House of Representatives alarmed moderate members of the Democratic caucus. “We need to not ever use the word ‘socialist’ or ‘socialism’ ever again,” Rep.

Even in California, where  Democrats are securely in charge of every branch of government, the Republican Party has now retaken four of the seven House seats it lost to Democrats in 2018...
